2012 NFL Mock Draft: Falcons Take OT In's Latest 2-Round Mock Draft

In's latest two-round mock draft, put together by Charley Casserly, the Atlanta Falcons use their second-round pick on an offensive tackle. The team gave up their first-round pick in 2012 when they traded up in the 2011 draft to select wide receiver Julio Jones out of Atlanta. With the team's second-round pick, in this mock draft, they select Florida State offensive tackle Zebrie Sanders.

55) Falcons: Zebrie Sanders, OT, Florida State. Help is needed on the offensive line.

Sanders is one of the better offensive tackles in this year's draft class and could help the offensive line open up holes in the running game and could help protect quarterback Matt Ryan while he tries to find one of his many talented weapons downfield.
